The end of a short-lived era is over: The Chicago Bears have placed rookie wide receiver Daniel Braverman on waivers.

The Chicago Bears used their final 2016 Draft pick on wide receiver Daniel Braverman from Western Michigan University. While many had never heard of the 7th round pick, there were some analysts saying this could end up being an under-the-radar steal for the Bears should Braverman find a spot on the final roster.

During Training Camp and the preseason, Braverman earned a cult following among Bears fans thanks to his athleticism and circus catches. We know that Jay Cutler throws hard, and often times puts the football in difficult places where only the wide receiver can catch it, and time after time Braverman came up with the football.

Jay Cutler liked Daniel Braverman, and that only added more fuel to the fan-fire that supported the rookie wideout.

At one point, Braverman had moved up to the #2 (!) wide receiver position on the Bears depth chart, but unfortunately, that was short lived.

On Saturday, however, his chances of making the final 53 man roster came to an end (for now anyways). The Bears will place him on waivers, and fans will hope that he will end up on the Practice Team should no other team claim him.

Stay tuned...
